221 Pages. The early Columbia series of books were amazing compilations of knitting and crochet patterns. This edition from the year of the Titanic has only a few patterns that appeared in other editions. There are clothing items for everyone in the household - including even a crocheted bridle for your horse! Everything can be found here from afghans to slippers. There are also infant's clothing, sweaters for all ages, shawls, hats, mittens. Much to much to mention everything!
What treasures these old manuals were! They are timecapsules of the fashions and lifestyles found in a time before everything was ready-made. Knitting and crocheting were not just a past time - but a necessity. This edition is slightly similar to other editions, but there are a huge amount of patterns not seen anywhere else. It is a goldmine for modern designers or for period enthusiasts!
